Re: STE power supply problem / switches on and off constantly

Disconnect the PSU from the board and check the 5V line (preferably on an oscilloscope if you have one) to see if it’s constant. If OK, then it might be worth replacing the 4700uf cap on the board.

Re: 1040 STE capacitors

40V rated cap will be fine assuming it fits.

Re: 1040 STE capacitors

Replacing the 4700uf on the board is usually a good idea as it acts as a reservoir for the 5v line. That and the PSU caps plus the bridge rectifier is usually enough.

Re: Atari Stacy 4 (UK based)

There’s a cover on the right hand side where you’ll find a pair of 9pin dsub connectors and a switch, flick the switch, power it up and see if the trackball works. ;)

Re: My 1040 STF works, but doesn't?

As mentioned above. A composite cable will not work on an ST without the modulator. As you have an STF (no 'M'), that cable will do nothing for you. That's not to say this is your only problem, of course! But you can't move forward at all until you have an RGB cable.

This forum is focussed on the 16/32bit Atari machines, so knowledge about the Amstrad CPC will be limited.

Re: Lazy Sunday with Exxos Mods

Desoldering requires practice. You should always use fresh solder as the flux will help plus mixing fresh solder with old solder will allow all the solder to flow easier giving you a much better chance of getting it all out with the pump (especially those pesky ground pins). Also, I have tried the p...
